PCD-1100/3B - Advantage 1
The Right Solution for My Shop?

In the world of fabrication there is no such thing as "one size fits all" equipment. Each machine has an ideal application, and for each Fabricator there is an ideal machine.

The PCD-1100/3B Beam Drill Line is a machine designed to apply high speed steel (morse taper) drill tooling to the production of structural steel members. From square/rectangular tubing to angle iron, the PCD-1100/3B will quickly and accurately produce 50-75 tons per week of processed profiles (this can fluctuate based on section size and complexity of operations).



Modular Design

Modular Design

The Peddinghaus Roller Feed material measurement system allows for an array of material handling options. With Peddinghaus Drill Lines, measurement happens at the machine, eliminating separate carriage or gripper feed mechanisms, allowing for total layout flexibility. Peddinghaus conveyors can be quickly expanded, split apart, transferred across from either side (datum or non datum) and modified with no sacrifice in machine accuracy or functionality. The elimination of unnecessary mechanism also allows for superior durability, as Peddinghaus material handling can be easily stored outside in any climate. In addition, the modular design of Roller Measurement gives fabricators the ability to expand their production on an as needed basis or as business dictates, allowing for unmatched potential.

Shop layout and material handling efficiency is paramount for cost savings. Every time a profile is handled with a crane, profits are lost. This unnecessary shop cost not only slows the productivity of other processes, but creates unneeded work related hazards. With the help of Peddinghaus' seasoned layout engineers and systems personnel fabricators learn the secrets to shop floor success without experiencing the pitfalls of poor layout and planning.

Store Material Outside

Your material doesn't need electricity, heat, or shelter in order to be stored. So why house all of your material handling inside, consuming valuable shop space, and incurring costly overhead expenses? Peddinghaus' Roller Feed design makes it easy to place material handling outdoors. On top of saving shop space, this innovative method eliminates unnecessary crane handling that inhibits other operations inside of your shop. Easily unload delivery trucks outside, and load conveyor without slowing other parts of your production.
  Small Facilities, Small Overhead

Big tonnages in small places - this is the mantra of the Peddinghaus systems department. Smaller spaces equate to lower operating expenses across the board; whether it's heat, electricity, property taxes, or the cost of initial investment. Peddinghaus users commonly employ a garage style structure outside of their main welding and fabrication shop to lower overhead costs, and minimize the hazards caused by housing multiple operations under a single roof.
  Grow In Phases
Grow In Phases
Grow In Phases

A beam drill line should be the building block for future success. At Peddinghaus we encourage our customers to grow in phases, as their production dictates. Many times layouts are designed with future expansion in mind.

Imagine this:
  • Phase 1: Installation of a Drill
  • Phase 2: Place saw in tandem for added flexibility
  • Phase 3: Move the saw and drill apart for maximized throughput
  • Phase 4: Add a coping machine for maximum production
All this is easily achieved with a Peddinghaus Roller Feed system!

Saw Integration

Saw Integration

Drilling and sawing need to work in harmony, no matter your operation. The big question is how to arrange such a system to receive desired throughput. Peddinghaus machines, due to their modular design, are capable of being placed in tandem, or split apart from a saw to suit each need.
  Process in Tandem with a Saw

Three independent spindles on the PCD-1100/3B drill line are utilized for optimal throughput. Unlike single spindle designs, the PCD-1100/3B is capable of drilling three holes simultaneously, maximizing throughput for common programs. Not only is the multi spindle design more efficient than designs with a single rotating spindle, it eliminates unnecessary side load, which can cause out of round holes, or even premature equipment failure.
  Smart Spindle Drilling

Take the guess work out of drilling, finish every hole in a profile, in the fastest manner possible using the Peddinghaus Smart Spindle approach. Not all material is perfect, flanges can be "toed in", "toed out" or simply be rolled at a varied thickness.

SMART SPINDLE DRILLING SEQUENCE:
  1. Rapid Approach
  2. Tool comes into contact with the material's surface, and an internal proximity switch is triggered
  3. Upon triggering the internal switch, the spindle enters its pre-programmed feed rates
  4. When material breakthrough occurs the switch is released, signifying that the hole is completed
  5. Tool is rapidly retracted and advances to the next hole in a pattern

The PCD-1100/3B drill line applies lubrication directly to the point of contact with material. By avoiding external lubrication hoses, tool life is optimized while minimizing the amount of lubricant applied to the tool, reducing maintenance costs, and increasing return on investment (ROI) of tooling involved.
  Why Drill Not Punch?
Why Drill Not Punch?
Why Drill Not Punch?

Punching has traditionally been recognized as an efficient and inexpensive form of hole creation. This method allows you to create slots, squares, and round holes in seconds with minimal mess, or maintenance.

Although punching is fast and affordable, it also creates stress fractures within material, which in some applications is unacceptable. In applications such as bridge work or specialty industrial jobs, engineers and regulating bodies do not allow punched or thermally generated (plasma or oxy cut) holes.

Beyond engineering specifications, punching is limited to a 1:1 material thickness:hole diameter ratio. This paired with the hardening of today's recycled materials proves challenging to traditional punching technology.

Roller Measurement

Roller Measurement
Roller Measurement

Peddinghaus' Roller Measurement allows for supreme flexibility in regards to material handling, and overall production capacity. This unique form of measurement actually drives the material through the machine with a powerful drive roller mechanism. By applying a set of precision encoders that track distance the material has traveled, the machine is able to quickly and accurately produce perfect parts.

Benefits of the Peddinghaus Roller Feed system can include:
  • Minimized footprint - store material outside, and allow material to easily pass through a small doorway through the exterior walls of your facility
  • No length restriction - stock length is dictated only by weight
  • Load profiles of all shapes and sizes one after another without any stop in production - no need to wait for the return or unload of a gripper carriage, no need to change clamping devices

Layout/Part Marking

Layout/Part Marking

Layout marking and carbide scribing are critical to accuracy, and reliability in today's modern fabricaton shops. The PCD-1100/3B offers a unique stationary carbide scribing station located on the top flange of a profile, and also performs streamlined layout marking via each of the available drill spindles.
  Carbide Scribing

Automated layout marking can be achieved on the PCD-1100/3B using the drill spindles as marking tools. A short stroke is applied with the spindle rotating to apply a small "dimple" or "pop-mark" that is easily visible to further welding and layout operations. Not only is this method of layout marking faster than carbide scribing, it can be more cost efficient when the elimination of further mechanism and consumables is taken into account.
  Hard Stamp Part Numbering - The SignoMat
